About Experience Oregon
A dynamic educational space, Experience Oregon will allow visitors to learn about the countless people, places, and events that have shaped this place. Visitors enter Experience Oregon through a panoramic theater that introduces major themes and sets the stage for the exhibit. Land and water are two predominent topics covered, displaying the diversity of Oregon's landscape, as well as people's historical and ongoing relationships with its resources. 

We have scoured our collections to display artifacts from across the state's geography and history – some on exhibit for the first time. Interactive stations throughout the exhibition include a "Stories from the Archives" tablet game, a covered-wagon replica visitors can walk through (pictured above), and role-playing games that allow visitors to take sides in historical debates. 
Thank you to the hundreds of individuals, organizations, and foundations who generously donated to make this exhibit possible. For a full list of donors, visit our website.
